Panasonic macro 45mm

06 January 2018 - 06:56 AM

I am heading to Puerto Galera for a week of macro.
I will take my Olympus 60mm however the visibility is not always great there and when I went few years ago I had to shoot quite far for octopus even large ghost pipefish and no matter the technique I had some backscatter in the shots.
I am thinking of getting the pana 45mm in order to get closer. It should work at 3/4’of the olympus shooting distance and still give 1:1 macro.
I have heard though that there are some focus challenges with this lens especially on olympus bodies and that the manual focus is not so effective
Is anyone shooting with this lens and is able to help?
Thank you
